Tracking Musk's Tesla in space: WhereIsRoadster.com

Techstination feature for Tuesday, February 27, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    It’s an image that many of us won’t soon forget.    A red Tesla Roadster…traveling through space…with  a space suited mannequin dubbed Starman behind the wheel.   It was launched earlier this month by Elon Musk’s Falcon Heavy (sound)

And now an engineer, Ben Pearson…has created a Web site….WhereIsRoadster.com….to let us see where that Roadster is ….and where it will be…

“You can see how far away the Roadster is away from Earth as well as some other fun statistics like how many times has it expired its 36 thousand mile warranty since it took off into space.”

Millions of people have now found Pearson’s clever site.   Join the fun at WhereIsRoadster.com.
